NEUSTADT AN DER WEINSTRAßE – Hambacher Schloss

Hambach Castle is located on the mountain Schlossberg in Neustadt an der Weinstraße . There is little known about its early history; the big estate was said to be one of the most important facilities of the Bishopric of Speyer in the late Middle Ages. Hambach Castle is considered to be the symbol of the German democracy movement because of the Hambacher Fest which occurred here in 1832.This was a German national democratic meeting where 30,000 participants from all ranks of society stood up for liberty, civil rights and national unity. The event had no immediate results, but is nevertheless considered to be a milestone in German history.Today the national memorial is a museum and convention centre in which events of the federal state Rhineland-Palatinate, the District Bad Dürkheim and the city Neustadt an der Weinstraße take place all year round.
